Mastering Tech Due Diligence: Exclusive Webinar for PE Investors

In private equity, where every investment is a calculated risk, the role of technology in shaping the future of businesses cannot be underestimated. Without the right tools to navigate this intricate landscape, investors might face a black box where uncertainties outweigh returns.


In acquisitions, most failures occur during the post-acquisition integration phase. One of the key reasons behind this is the concealed risks associated with technology. Every investor should ask, "What if the target does not fulfill our hypothesis, and how can we avoid that?"


You can find the guiding answer to that question in technology due diligence.


The Nature of Technology Investments


The challenge stems from insufficient groundwork on the tech front, causing unexpected integration costs and operational bottlenecks. Committing substantial capital without fulfilling the investment hypothesis is a costly mistake many PE investors targeting technology companies tap into.


A comprehensive pre-acquisition assessment can prevent such situations. Without careful examination of legacy code, technical debt, third-party dependencies, and other factors, software can cause scalability and compliance challenges. The outcome of overlooking these factors can be a disjointed technology integration that introduces operational conflicts, technological limitations, and, in the worst case: An elevated risk of not realizing the investment hypothesis.


Best Practices for Conducting Tech Due Diligence


The relevance of technology due diligence extends beyond the initial deal sourcing and evaluation phase. Successful post-merger technology integration is equally vital. But what’s the process like in practice, and what makes it difficult for PE investors?


Effective tech due diligence demands specialized acumen paired with objectivity. The first is a cornerstone of internal and external IT experts who are relevant to the investment case. Objectivity, on the other hand, is a strong suit mostly of external experts, given that internal assessments carry the risk of subjective judgments.
